Schools compete to win £500 in the Medway Can Comp!

Schools in Medway are competing to win a whopping £500 in sports vouchers as part of the exciting #MedwayCanComp!

Between 9th January to 3rd February 2023 schools across Medway will be competing together by running, jumping, dancing and exercising as much as they can – logging their Team’s miles at medwaycan.com 

The winning school will be judged on how many miles they’ve recorded per child, for example:

If a school records 100 miles and 100 pupils take part, that will be 1 mile per child.

However, if another school records 50 miles with 25 pupils, that will be 2 miles per child and they will win.

This means that even the smallest schools have a fair chance of winning the prize!

But there’s even more prizes to be won!

There will be an additional £100 in sports vouchers for the school that reaches the most amount of miles in total and another £100 for the school which shares the best social media picture of themselves being active.

Let us know you are taking part by emailing “We’re in!” to healthyweightnetwork@medway.gov.uk

What activities count towards the miles? 

All activities logged must be arranged activities with the intention to get kids moving more! PE doesn’t count as this is compulsory, with the same going for breaktime (unless it is being used to run a group activity). Any activities outside of these are fair game!

Here’s some suggestions you could get involved with:

  • The Daily Mile
  • Medway Can Stars (star jump challenge)
  • Extra-curricular clubs
  • Lunch time initiatives
  • Walk To School Wednesday.

Whether it’s hula-hooping, skipping or cycling, as students get moving in some kind of arranged activity, the miles can be logged towards the school total.

When will the competition take place?

As soon as the clock hits 8am on Monday the 9th of January, we’re off!

The first set of activities should be logged on Friday, 13th of January.

Medway Can Comp will come to a close on Friday 3rd Feb at 5pm.

After this time no more activities logged will be accepted, so get everything in before then!

When will the winners be announced?

The winners will be announced in the last week before for half-term on Friday 10th February 2023.

Who should I speak to if I have any questions?

Good luck to every school taking part. Let’s get Medway moving!
